What is this I'm hearing?
I cant find anything on the site re this functionality. I just picked up a V500 and V300 used (long story but great deal) and was going to go V300 for my application but bluetooth would keep me in the V5.The V500SD has a Bluetooth option for configuring and real time.

Thx have you had good results with this. Any insight on a how to?You can do this with any of the RacePak units, you will just need to make the bluetooth side yourself.
Use this module
Config to autodetect each other.
Plug one into the config port on the RacePak
The other into a USB to serial adapter.
Power up and you are set.
Your MSD and your PC will act just like a hard wire connection between the two exists.
Correct, but you could make a short cable with the adapter plug in. Kinda like the SD card download kit for the V300/V500 stuff. Walk up to the car and plug it in after the pass. You are still gonna have slow downloads like the cable already is though.I doubt this will work with any non-SD model as the serial connection shorts live logging if left plugged in... So... I guess it would work but you would have to plug in and unplug the adapter each pass.
It's a grounding path issue in the serial connector... the problem would be mechanical, not electrical.
I am going to assume you know more than me on this so I'm listening... that said, I'm still confused as to how a relay would work without hacking the connector.You can't see the light, open your eyes lol. There are many ways around damn near any problem, you just need to look.
Following is a link to connecting the car to the bluetooth
This will mechanically connect the Bluetooth to the racepak. Again only when the PC wants to talk, you make the car side go live.
